Unless you have proof to support this, that was uncalled for - like your first comment for that matter.
You should see how some of my Geordie Facebook friends write on there. If you do not know the dialect, you'll understand none of it. To me that was only text speech/facebook speech coming through.


Douglas, to answer your question: it was my hubby -limba- But it worked out very well and there are loads of things I like about being here, apart from having my husband here and his wonderful family that have all accepted me from day 1 (they care about what type of person you are, not where you come from).

It is so. Maybe it's that I type too fast and miss words out or my auto correct puts the wrong word in. But also we talk differently from the rest of the uk and use different words. For example for "me" we say "is" lol so instead of "give me it back" we say "give is it back".

Take it as a joke!
With all the kerfuffle that's in the media these days some of us are a bit caucious with the new members.
On the other side "we" the romanians are perfect in everything we do.
We are the most inteligent, clever, and full of itself nation under the sun.
You better get use with our sick sense of gravity and orientation or at list get a good compass with you.

I remember seeing someone saying that people in here shouldn't speak engkish because they don't want to forget about their own language.

Well I really don't have a problem with that but that's how people on my country think as well we think if you don't speak English then how can you integrate lol do you integrate well with us. Also this song is probably one of the most important to us.

Since I have no idea how to post a link.

I was the one saying that @Douglas but wasn't on a serious note, of course I won't forget my own language. Even still, I think using English on this forum won't help integrating in the society. It rather comes down to one's behaviour outside the forum, whether they mix with other nationalities or stick to their Romanian friends.

You may be surprised but a lot of Britons in Australia haven't integrated in the Aussie society, despite speaking the same language, simply because they move to suburbs with a high concentration of British expats, hang out with fellow Britons, still watch British channels and, after years of living there, they still have no Aussie friends. I've seen that a lot.

What I am trying to demonstrate is that integration has less to do with what language we use when chatting to other Romanians but more with the way we go about our day to day lives as individuals in the English society.

Just out of interest, does anyone on this forum play cricket? :)

Hi, Douglas,

That is not true. Most Romanians do speak English and make themselves understood.
Nor is this article. It's all about politics and the inflamation it is meant to bring about. It fosters unjustified hatred.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/ ... -show.html

And, yes, without this forum, some of us would forget the mother tongue, especially the ones working day in, day out (and living) with English speakers.(once you don't use something, the human natural tendency is to forget it).
Frati romani, va rog eu mult, faceti un efort supraomenesc si lasati capra vecinului sa moara de batranete!

Had the English kept their culture, language and music, and not least, their humanist values to themselves, this would have been a valid question. But since they hadn't, I won't even bother with a too obvious answer :)

Maybe Seb123 doesn't like the multiculturalism and he likes UK only because he has a better job here.
Or, as you said, your culture (music, language, values) can be accessed almost everywhere.

Re: What attracts you to the uk?

Postby Seb123 » Feb 27th, '13, 14:30

I had the feeling my post may be too obscure :) And I have no idea how I might have given rise to the suspicion that I oppose the all-shining multiculturalism.

What I was trying to say is that English culture is very seductive; though it may not necessarily be world-wide as in universalistic, it certainly is penetrating. If you wish, a local culture so powerful that it had become universal. How many trends have come from the UK, and how many people (and how many teenagers), in how many places and how many periods of time had it affected? And through language it has become even more accessible and penetrating. In short, one of the most loved and well known and respected countries in the world. From this points of view, it may be a little redundant to ask what attracts others to the UK.

As for me, what counts the most is the place and the people themselves. Your overall country branding, if I may say so, has irrevocably gotten to me. I'm still in Romania, but plan to come here in a few months' time. What I expect is not necessarily an increase in life quality (though it will be) but in life style. Those that earnestly say they are here just for the jobs and the money should think again. Would they move to, say Saudi Arabia, if they'd be paid better there? To get a little academic, a recent UN study has come to the conclusion that the main driver for worldwide migration is not economics but to escape an irksome (their exact word) local culture. And I know most of the people here can relate to that. I don't mind being poor in the UK as opposed to being middle-class home (and I'm not talking about money here). It's about being part of a better (avoid the word "superior") culture, even as an outsider.

I'm sorry if my answer may border on the wrong side of political correctness, indeed it has become excessive. So, what attracts me and many others to the UK: the answer is you, and the great job that you have done.

(Note: I don't intend to criticise my native culture by this, so please don't jump all over me. I'm just saying it is a mediocre, average one, like the majority, as opposed to a "better" one. Shoot away :)

I can honestly say I've never had a problem with Romanians only Roma gipsies. Last year for the Olympics the press done a scare story about loads of homeless Romanians sleeping rough outside of marble arch and buckingham palace and when it showed you a picture I've never seen any Romanians who dress like that. I want to go to Romania because I want to see that statue carved from stone that's on the face of a cliff.


Douglas, i think u mean the statue of Decebal. We could say that is one of the most beautiful places in Romania, at least over the Danube. My parents are living right there in a small village at about 5 kilometeres from the Decebal statue. So anytime you will consider visiting that part of Romania we could help you with more information about it.
